Sexual intimacy is one of the most profoundly pleasurable experiences we can have as human beings.

But what happens when sex becomes painful or has always been painful?

Many women who experience vaginal pain may feel isolated, alone, and “broken”, and yet, far from being an extraordinary experience, pain during intercourse or stimulation is actually very common.

It is estimated that nearly 3 out of 4 women have pain during intercourse at some time during their lives.

For some women the pain is only a temporary issue; for others, it is all they have ever known.

In this episode of Sex Is Medicine pelvic floor specialist, Marthe Schneider she shares what vaginal pain disorder is, what causes it, and what YOU can do to heal it.

And I must say, just listening to this episode and learning about the way the brain interprets sensation was extremely helpful to me in resolving some of my own vaginal pain issues.

    1. Hey there PH! Correct. In this interview with Marthe, we focused on the often overlooked psychosomatic roots of vaginal pain. This is the area of focus in Marthe’s clinical work. The patients Marthe works with have already explored and been treated for possible physiological causes of vaginal pain, to no avail. The psychosomatic causes of vaginal pain are often overlooked in conventional Western therapies for this issue, so we wanted to highlight an alternative approach to this issue for those women who have attempted conventional therapy, and yet were still struggling with this issue. You are absolutely correct that menopause can be leading cause of vaginal pain for women, and we do address this in some of our other videos. Changes in sexual functioning due to menopause is a primary topic I address when teaching about Yoni Yoga and yoni ball practices, as these exercises are one of the top therapies used to address vaginal pain and vaginal thinning in menopausal women in the Taoist tradition 🙂
